Blogging is inherently fast, and that's why so many professional bloggers call it their choice platform.

Like many new bloggers, I used to think that until I had enough traffic to make a difference, I'd worry about the bandwidth and site speed later. But that's not thinking ahead considering that today social media can drive an overwhelming amount of traffic in a very short period of time; you don't want to get caught with a crashed site.

When you're not prepared for lots of traffic, it's common for a web host to suspend your account temporarily, and that's something you don't want. If your writing is decent and you've been doing some minimal promotion, then it could happen to you. Think positively and prepare your blog as though it's going to be a huge success. To do that, here is a tutorial on how to speed up your WordPress site.

Note: As always, with everything, you should backup your WordPress installation before making any code changes.

Tesla's Model S P100D is already one of the fastest production cars in the world. Announced in August 2016, it goes from 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds (according to Tesla). That's in range with supercars such as the Porsche 918 Spyder, which claims the same acceleration figure.

Now, according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, the fastest Model S will become even faster after a software update due next month.

For comparison, Rimac Concept_One, the Croatian electric supercar that beat some of the fastest cars in the world (including the Tesla Model S P90D) in a head-to-head quarter-mile race, is rated at 2.6 seconds for 0 to 60 mph and does a quarter mile in 9.9 seconds. It is, however, priced at $980,000, while the Tesla Model S P100D starts at $134,500.

Tesla added that the update will also apply to Model X, which will also shave 0.1 seconds off its 0 to 60 mph and quarter-mile numbers.
